Normal aseptic precautions should be observed. Use a dry syringe for extraction of suspension to avoid hydrolysis of amoxicillin.
If dose volume exceeds 20 ml in cattle or 10 ml in sheep and pigs, it should be divided and injected into two sites.
A separate injection site should be used for each administration.
An appropriately graduated syringe must be used to allow accurate administration of the required dose volume. This is particularly important when injecting small volumes.
